TRAVEL TIP: Suggestions for dining out in Paris


La Factorie: one of their specialités is chou farci or cabbage roll with a side of mashed potatoes, a bit of rich beef juice and a lovely simply salad with radishes - I can't begin to tell you how delicious this was!
Eating out in Paris can be expensive, but it doesn't have to be. This last trip in September of 2016 we were lucky to find quite a few places that worked just fine for our appetites and budget. And we didn't use a guidebook, just our sense of a place. If we can do it you certainly can.

(We did return to two places: Noodle and Cuisine de Bar. Cuisine was the only bad apple in the barrel and I didn't include it in our list.)

I've listed all the places we ate either lunch or dinner while in Paris. Any of these are a good bet, with reasonable prices and pleasant food.

Sapporo - 37 Rue Sainte-Anne, 75001 - Ramen noodle
Noodle - 54 Rue Sainte-Anne, 75002 - Ramen noodle
Bistrot des Vosges - 31 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75004 - cuisine from Aveyron
Cafe a la Contrescarpe - 57 Rue Lacépède, 75005
La Billebaude - 29 Rue de l'Exposition, 75007
Le Lithographe - 234 Boulevard Raspail, 75014
Le Bistrot de la Galette - 102ter Rue Lepic, 75018 - Puffed pastry plays a huge role here
La Factorie - 42 Boulevard de Ménilmontant 75020
Royal Fata - 237 Rue des Pyrénées, 75020 - Asian
